The 17 Hudson Valley Towns That Will Sell Recreational Marijuana
There are 17 Hudson Valley towns that have voted to allow marijuana dispensaries in the Hudson Valley.
Under legislation passed in New York to legalize recreational marijuana use, local municipalities have the ability to "opt-out" of the law and forbid the sale of pot. Towns, villages, and cities throughout New York have until December 31 to pass legislation that would ban marijuana dispensaries. They can also separately decide whether or not to allow consumption sites, or "pot lounges" within the city limits.
Many Hudson Valley towns have already decided to ban the sale of pot, while others have thrown their enthusiastic support behind the new law.
Below is a list of towns in Dutchess, Orange, and Ulster counties that have already voted to allow the sale of marijuana. Is your town on the list?
